Why BUA?

Boston. University. Academy. Our name says it all.

BU Academy is a high school embedded in a major urban research university. As a school, we're distinctive, and our students are as well. We are a community of individuals who come from 58 cities and towns and bring with us 175 different life experiences. 

BU Academy students are excited to use their intellects and the tools of scholarship to tackle any challenge, whether it's reciting the opening lines of The Canterbury Tales in Middle English or taking Differential Equations with undergraduates at BU. 

We invite you to learn more, and hope you'll visit campus to experience BUA for yourself.
